Without a Google Account, your only option is to hard reset the device. This means that all of your data will be lost. If you had setup a Google Account then you could have used that to periodically backup the device as well as gain access if you forgot your security information for the lock screen.

Hard reset your device. These themes are full of bugs and this happens all the time. It messes with the keyboard functions and the only way to get past it will be to hard reset the device back to factory settings if it is locked.

On wiping data will my 64 GB internal storage be also wiped clean?

What about my contacts, images, messages, etc.? Are the settings only resetting to the original?

Everything gets wiped away. If you regularly synced your Google Account then items like Contacts, Images, and Videos may be recovered but messages and files will be deleted unless they were saved via Google Drive or another cloud. You could try to remove the SD card and backup that data on your PC, however, most data still saves in internal memory and not on the SD card.

Does all my personal data get deleted or if I have a backup I'll get back my stuff?

If you can backup your device then you will not lose much and be able to put it back on the device. You would have had to do this before you were locked out of the phone.

I am getting fastboot image instead of the page described, why?
